Yes ok, this was a business trip but who says you can’t find some time to unwind as well?
So last month, I had to go to Germany and Austria. Flew Etihad Airways so there was a stop over in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.
The weather in Thailand was beginning to get hot so it was a nice change to land in Europe with relatively much cooler temperatures.
So the first night was at Hotel Augusta in Augsburg. Small room but comfortable enough for a good night’s rest. But not yet. Time for some food and beer.
Went for a stroll near the local fruit and vegetable market. The strawberries were f*cking awesome. Washed them down with some nice beer at the town square.
Had dinner at the Osteria Albero Verde. A German / Italian restaurant serving great steaks in a beautiful old building.
The hotel breakfast was quite nice. Breakfast was a buffet of cold cuts, breads and a small selection of hot foods. More than enough to kick-start the day right.
Lovely platter of pastries and cold cut sandwiches for quick lunch.
Off to Munich! Some familiar sights and sounds from my previous trips here.
When in Munich, do as the locals do. Have a nice beer and do some people watching.
Had dinner at the Augustiner restaurant. Superb food and great atmosphere.
And of course the pretzels. Oh my gosh. The salted pretzels. I want one right now damn it! So freaking good.
Woke up early and had breakfast hotel. Another lovely buffet.
Headed off to Austria straight after. Beautiful blue skies and cool weather. Great driving conditions. Next meal was a quick working lunch.
Stayed at Hotel Attersee. Beautiful view of the lake from my room.
And of course next up was dinner. Yummy.
Followed by a lovely dessert.
Had a great sleep after. In the morning, had another nice breakfast and headed off to the airport back to Bangkok.
As much as I really enjoyed the German and Austrian food and beers, I missed spicy Thai food and rice.
After landing back in Bangkok, I couldn’t help myself and got a plate of hot stuff before heading back home.
Until next time. Ciao.
